Liberty Normal College is not an institution of re- 
cent origin, but is the result of a hearty growth. More 
than sixteen years ago the peopleof Liberty erected the 
lirst of the Liberty Normal College buildings. This 
school, formei'ly known as Liberty Academy a,nd Busi- 
ness Institute, has attracted students from many of tlie 
Southern States. New buildings were erected from 
time to time to meet the growing demands of the school. 

In the spring of 1896 the buildings and grounds 
were bought by Thomas C. Amiclr, and in order to meet 
the demands of the people, thecouises of study ha,ve 
been extended, until they now embi-ace the full College 
Courses of Study. The name of the institution was al- 
so changed to Liberty No}mal College. 

In the year 1899 Prof. P. E Shaw, of the University 
of Nashville, Tennessee, was admitted as an equal part- 
ner with the President, and the College is now under the 
joint control of the President and his associate, Profes 
sor Shaw. 

The Legislature of 1899 gave the College a charter, 
conferring upon the institution full corporate powers to 
establish Courses of Study, confer Diplomas upon grad 
nation, to raise funds for the benetit of the College and 
of its students, and to appoint Trustees and Boards of 
Directoi's for the better government and maintenance 
of the Institution of learnino:. 

Liberty Normal College. 


Liberty Normal College is situated in Liberty, Ran- 
dolph County, North Carolina. It is on the main line of 
.the great SouLhei-n Railway leading from Mount Airy to 
Sanford, North Carolina. It is twenty miles northeast 
of Asheboro, the county seat of Randolph County, 

The location is w^ell adapted for a school. The in- 
habitants of Liberty are cultured and refined, and the 
student associates from day to day with those who have 
a tendency to improve his moral character, and to in- 
spif-e him to a nobler manhood. There are no bar rooms 
and nothing to distract from study. The land is high 
and free from malarial influence and sickness among the 
student body is a thing that is almost unknown. The 
location is also very beautiful, and appeals to the ass- 
thelic faculties of the student. There is no more 
beautiful section ui central North Carolina than the sec- 
tion of country ai'ound Liberty. A succession of hill, 
dale, and valley, grove and forest, make our location as 
beautiful as could be desired. The College Campus is a 
grove of maples and is one among the niost pleasant 
places in Liberty. 

The College has access to a spring of pure mineral 
water which has been pronounced by our most eminent 
physicians to be the best mineral water in the country. 
The water possesses those curative properties that 
keeps the student strong and well and capable of doing 
the very best work in the school room. 

The first thing that a parent should look after in 
choosing a school is the health of his child. In sending 
to Liberty, the parent naay ]-est assured that the health 
of his son or daughter will be well cared for. The mail 
and telegraphic facihties here are the very best. Trains 
arrive every few hours and a number of mails arrive 
daily from the country. 

Liberty Normal College. 


There are four churches in the town; the Methodist 
Protestant, the Methodist Episcopal, the Baptist and 
the Christian. Each church has its Sunday-School, 
and every student is required to attend one of these 
Sunday-Schools. Each student is also expected to at- 
ten d divine services every Sunday. 


The purposes of Liberty Normal College are to train 
men and women for life, to develop in them all the man- 
hood and womanhood possible, and to develop such a 
character as will give them power and influence among 
men. The time has come when the si udent needs more 
than a mere knowledge of facts; he must have the pow- 
er to use and apply them. He must be thoroughly in- 
doctrinated in principles that he may see the relation of 
cause to effect and of effect to cause and thus be helped 
to carve out his careei- in the world. He needs tJjat 
mental culture and discipline that will give him ])ower 
to do and act, and will enable him to arrive at a success- 
ful solution of any and all the problems, both social and 
economic, that are continually rising to the surface. — 
Not mental culture alone, but moral and physical cul- 
ture are necessary to make the full man. It is the pur- 
pose of the College to prepare the student for complete 
living, and to aid nature in the development of the phys- 
ical, intellectual and moral faculties of man, in view of 
his happiness, his perfection and his social destination.

Hethods of Instruction. 

The Methods of Instruction used are the results of 
experience and of the latest scientific study of the 
mind and its workings. From a long course of profes- 
sional training and experience, the faculty have gather- 
ed such a list of educational doctrine and educational 
thought, that they ha\^e made themselves masters in 
their chosen field of work. The very best methods of 
instruction are used, and the result is a quick and thor- 
ough mental and moral growth of the individual. We 
do not claim that this scholarship and culture may be 
gained by any short or royal road. There is no easy 
and expeditious way t(3 become a scholarly man or vi'^om. 
an The Roman maxim that "The gods have placed 
sweat in the path of excellence," applies in the school 
Hfe as well as in any other department of life. Instruc- 
tion that goes only far enough to create in the student a 
conceit that he is wise is a very sorry preparation for 
the serious affairs of life. The more modest school and 
the one of greatest value to the student, gives such 
de[)th and extension of scholarship that its students 
contract a love for training and culture and form a mod- 
est estimate of their present attainments. A school of 
this kind creates in a student such a desire for learning, 
knowledge and culture that he becomes a student for 


The buildings of the Liberty Normal College are 
commodious. The recitation rooms are furnished with 
the latest and best iron frame desks. The buildings 
are well lighted, well ventilated, and well heated. There 

8 Liberty Normal College. 

are in the buildings music rooms, society halJs, teach- 
er's offices, besides the regular recitation rooms. The 
Chapel for morning and evening services, also for Com- 
mencements, is used for a study hall. Tlie grounds are 
laid off into walks and avenues. There is plenty of 
room for physical exercise and recreation. The stu- 
dent is encouraged to take plenty of athletic exercise. 
We hope soon to have a well equipped gymnasium. 


An effort was made during the last school year to 
equip the College with a good working library, and the 
results far exceeded the expectations. A fund wns 
raised, and the College nov/ possesses a good library of 
the very best books. In the selection of these books, 
special attention was paid to ihe needs of the students 
of the College and such books were bought as the stu- 
dents need for reference. After these were purchased, 
then the works of the masters in literatui e, in science, 
and in art were added. The students of the College 
now have the opportunity of communing with the mas- 
ter minds of the w^orld through the books in the College 
Library. Nearly 1000 books were dr-awn from the libra- 
ry and read during the few months since the iibraiy 
was installed. All students of the College have access 
to the library without cost. 

The library is one of the great means of culture 
that the College possesses. The student is taught to 
love to read, and instead of spending his time in loaf- 
ing and idling, he is found reading and learning some- 
thing that wi-ll be of value to him in later life. Too 
much stress cannot be laid on this feature of our 
school. A school with a good library is w^orth incalcu- 
lably more to the student than the school that has none.

In the Liberty Normal College, the student has every 
opportunity for culture and improvement. 

Dicipline and Qovernment. 

Every student is taught the right and is required 
to do the right. Moi'al suasion is used to lead the 
tr()ublesome pupil to do his duty. Where moral suasion 
and kind treatment will not avail, we believe in using 
the "i-od of correction." And if this will not avail, or 
if lh(i student wields a bad influence over his compan- 
ions, he will not be allowed to remain in school. We 
expect to make the type of our school high with respect 
to morality, and we will not be bothered with mean and 
vicious pupils. We wish in the Liberty Normal Col- 
lege good, noble young men and women who wish to 
pj'epare themselves mentally, morally, and spiritually 
for the work of life. 

Every departmeutof our school is thoroughly organ- 
ized. The students are at all times under the super, 
vision of their teachers. The true Christian gentleman 
is the type at which we aim. Students entering the 
College must agree to observe the following require- 

1. Not to use tobacco in any form, fashion, or 
shape while in school, in or around the stores, or on the 
streets of Liberty. 

2. Not to use any intoxicating drink or narcotic 
drug of any kind while a student in Liberty Normal 

3. The use of profane or obscene language is strict- 
ly prohibited. 

4. Students must not attend any party or social

gathering given during the week except on permission 
from the President. 

5. Abusing the College property or grounds is 

6. Young men are not allowed to make calls on 
the yoang ladies and young ladies are not allowed to 
have young gentleman visitors, except by permission of 
parents and faculty. 

7. Each student must be prompt at meals, prompt 
at all school exercises and recitation periods. 

8. Attendance at Sunday-School and Divine Ser- 
vices is required. 

9. Every student is required to be at his home of 
boarding place from 7 o'clock at night until 8 o'clock in 
the morning. 

10, No student boarding in Liberty will be allowed 
to leave the town except on permission of the Presi; 
dent. Those boarding students who go home on Friday 
evenings are excused to le<.ve town as soon as their 
week's work is done. , 

IL The faculty stands "m loco parentis'^ to the 
boarding student, and the boarding student is respon- 
sible to the faculty for all his acts while a student of the 

All are expected to be manly and womanly and do 
the right. 

Literary Societies. 

The Caldwell Literary Society was organized in 1896. 
It has done good work and the boys have been very en- 
thusiastic. It is the purpose of the Society to stimu- 
late in its members \i sciiolarly ambition, and improve 
them in oratory and expression. 

Liberty Normal College. 11 

Tlie Carr Literar-y Society was organized in 1899. 
It was named in honor of one of North Carf^lina's great- 
est philanthropists and educators. Since its organiza- 
tion the members of the Society hcive done a great deal 
of work and they have gained that inspiration and en- 
thusiasm in public speaking and oratory that we hope 
will go with them through life. 

, Lt is in these societies that our boys become ac- 

quainted wi.h the laws of parliamentary usage and 
drill themselves in debate and elocution. The programs 
are interesting and each young man is raised to that de- 
o-vee of contidence in himsel'f that he can stand before 
an audience and address the people in his own language. 

riedical Attention. 

In case of sickness students will be well cared for. 
There are two resident physicians in the town, and they 
will give students all needed medical attention at re- 
duced cost. In cases of serious ihness with boarding 
students, parents will be kept notified of the condition 
of theii- son or daughter. 

Physical Culture. 

The College lays special stress on physical culture. 
Eveiy student, is expected to take such a regular and 
systematic course of physical training as will give him 
a sound and healthful body. One of the members of 
the faculty will direct this work, and will prescribe 
such calisthenic and gymnastic drills as the individual 
student needs. Students will take out-door recreation 
in the diflerent games of the day. All athletic spoi'ts 

12 Liberty Normal College. 

are encouraged to that extent that they will develop a 
strong and vigorous physical being. 

The College does not favor any brutal games and 
v^^ill not allow its sti?dents to participate in such. While 
the College has its ball club, the policy of the CoUege 
will not be to encourage its students to take tours for 
the purpose of playing match games with other clubs 
and organizations of the kind. In general, this is de- 
morahzing, and the Liberty Normal College prefers to 
have its reputation built on a more enduring foundation 
than its power in brute force. We wish to excel in the 
intellectual attainments of our students. While the 
student is encouraged to develop his body, he is more 
encouraged to develop that part of his nature that is to 
give him power and influence among men, and is to 
enable him to be a useful citizen in his communitv. 

Moral and Religous Culture. 

Each clay's work will begin with a song sei'vice, the 
reading of a Scripture lesson, and prayer. At the close 
of the day's work the students are again called together, 
a portion of Scripture is read, and prayer oifered. Wo 
put forth every effort to inculcate into the student the 
true principles of morality. We do not believe in devel- 
oping the intellect at the expense of the moral or relig- 
ious nature of the individual. All goes hand in hand. 

A series of morning talks is given by flie Presi 
dent. Duty in its different phases is set before the 
student body. Questions of Moral Philosophy are dis- 
cussed, and the princi[)les governing man in his i-elation 
to man and in his dealings with his fellow man aj'e fully 
discussed. Students are taught what it takes to consti- 

Liberty Normal College. 13 

tute light, and they are then taught toappl}^ these prin- 
ciples in their daily school life. The feelings are dis- 
cussed and analyzed and their influence upon the will 
fully set forth. It has been observed that this series 
of lectures has had a great deal to do with the forma- 
tion of the student's moral character. 

Boarding Facilities. 

Students can get board no cheaper any where than 
at, Liberty. There are quite a number of families in 
town who take boarding students and give them the ad- 
vantages of a Christian home. All get the very best 
board and have everything furnished them that they 
need. Tliey need bring nothing with them from home 
in the hue of furniture, bed-clothing, towels, &c., as ev- 
erything is included in the cost of board. Students can 
get all these advantages from $6.00 to $7.00 a month. 

Besides, tliere area number of families in Liberty 
who do not care to take boarding students regularly, 
but have rooms that they will rent to young ladies who 
wish to board themselves. Rooms will cost about 50 
cents a month. Young ladies who wish to take advan- 
tage of this cheaper method of boarding, will have to 
furnish their room, and furnish all the necessary bed- 
clothing, towels, napkins, &c. They have a stove fur- 
nished them and most cooking utensils will be furnish- 
without further cost than the cost of the room. So 
young ladies who wish to board themselves can find 
good homes and they can make their board cost them 
as little as they wish. All young ladies wishing to 
board themselves should write the president of the Col- 
lege, and all necessary arrangements will be made for 

14 Liberty Normal College. 

There are also a number of rooms in town that 
young men can get at a small cost and board themselves. 
These rooms are conveniently located and do not gener- 
ally cost the student more than 25 cents a month. 50 
cents a month is the highest cost of any of these rooms. 
The young man boarding himself furnishes all the fur- 
niture that he needs. 

In the past, many of the best students and those 
who have taken away the highest honors of the College, 
have generally been those who boarded themselves. — 
All honor to the young man or the young woman who is 
willing to board himself or herself, and put forth the 
greatest effort, and undergo the the greatest inconven- 
iences in order that they may secure an education. By 
so doing, young men and young women of very limited 
means have been enabled to secure a school training and 
a culture of the highest type. 

Loan Fund. 

During the Autumn of 1899, a fund of $3000.00 was 
raised and placed in the hands of a Board of Trustees, 
of which J. P. Pickett is President and Dr W. J. Staley 
is Secretary and Treasurer. The interest of this fund 
is to be used for the benefit of needy students. It is 
lent to them in amounts sufficient to pay their tuition 
in the College as long as they may wish to attend. This 
money is lent to the student without interest until the 
student completes his education at school, or until he 
enters on the duties of actual life. No student is al- 
lowed to borrow more from the fund than a sufficient 
amount to pay his tuition, and he must give such secur- 
ity as will make the amount safe. All students wishing 
help from this fund must come well recommended.

Rev. G. F. Miloway, Pastor of the Burlington 
Methodist Protestant Church, has estabhshed one free 
scholarship in the Liberty Normal College which enti- 
tles the holder to free tuition in the Liberty Normal 
College as long as he holds the Scholarship. All appli- 
cants for the scholarship should correspond with the 

Rev. J. D. Williams, Pastor of the Winston Metho- 
dist Protestant Church, has also established one free 
scholarship in the Liberty Normal College. This scool- 
arship may be secured by any young man or woman 
who complies with the conditions laid down by Rev. 
Mr. Williams, All students applying for this scholar- 
ship should correspond with Rev. J. D. Williams, Win- 
ston, North Carolina. 

Besides these, the College offers five full scholar- 
ships and five half scholarships which will entitle the 
students holding them to full tuition or half tuition free 
as long as they meet the requirements of the College. 
The conditions for winning these scholarships will be 
made known by the president of the Cohege to those 
who apply. They are mainly given for the benefit of 
those young men arnd women who have not the means 
to attend school otherwise. All applying for them 
should send testimonials of good character- 

Other Scholarships. 

The University of North Carolina has presented 
one scholarship to that young man who prepares him- 
self most thoroughly for the University of North Caro- 
lina. This scholarship gives the holder four years' free 
tuition in the University of North Carolina. 

16 Liberty Normal College. 

The PrewSident of the Agricultural cand Mechanical 
College at Raleigh has donated one scholarship in that 
Institution to that young man who is appointed to it by 
the President of the Liberty Normal College This 
gives the holder free tuition for four years in A. and M. 
College at Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Other scholarship funds are expected to be estab- 
lished this year, and no effort will be spared to give 
every young man and young woman a chance to win an 
education. To all that earnestly seek to win culture 
and scholarship, the College is open and the faculty say 

No effort will be spared to make the College, both 
in scholarship and in the advantages offered, the equal 
of any school in the Sonth. its students have taken 
the highest rank in the University, Wake Forest and 
many other schools and colleges in tlie South. 

The growth of the institution for the past six yeai"s 
has been quite gratifying. The College has been gain- 
ing power and influence, and it is expected that the 
next year's work will supersede all foi'mer years in 
numbers and advantasres offered. 

Departments of Instruction. 

The Courses of Study embrace the subjects taught 
in the primary schools, high schools, and academies of 
our land, also those in our colleges. Our Courses of 
study are divided into different groups which coi re- 
spond to the different stages of the students' mental 
development. The same faculty teach in all these de 
pepartments, and the younger student receives the 
same attention as the older and more advanced. The 
work is divided among the Primary, Intermediate, 
Academic, and Collegiate Departments as follows: —

English Language and Literature. 

Of all the studies in any school or college course, 
the English Language is by far the most important. 
No j'Oung person should leave school without a thor- 
ough knowledge of his native language. It constitutes 
the basis of all other educational accomplishments. 

Grammar is required four terms of five months 
each in the Preparatory Department in order to turn 
the attention of the student to the underlying princi- 
ples and relations of the language. 

Masterpieces of British and American Literature 
are studied with a view to introduce the student to lit- 
erature, and to teach him how to interpret and repre- 
sent life. 

Selections from Shakespeare, Chaucer, and other 
Enghsh Classics are studied lo help to impress the 
studer)t with the fact that, if he wishes to know and 
understand literature, he must come in close contact 
with the 'writings of the leading authors. 

One term is devoted to a dailj^ study of the history, 
use and derivation of the words of our hmguage based 
on Johnson's Study of English Words. 

During the entire course, frequent drills in compo- 
sition, essays, and written reports on reference read- 
ings and on assigned topics are required. After the 
first two years of the College course have been com- 
pleted, tiie student is thrown upon his own resources, 
and during the last year, orations are required to be 
delivered in the presence of the class.

Physiology is taught by means of text-books and 
lectures. The study is practical and is carried beyond 
the bounds of the ordinary text-book. Zoology, Geolo- 
gy, Botany and Astronomy are taught by means of 
text-books and lectures. Physics and Chemistry are 
also taught. Magnetism and Electricity will receive 
special attention. The student will be required to make 
experiments at every stage of his work. 


Libefty Normal College makes it one of its special 
aims to ti-ain teachers, and this course of study is offer- 
ed foi their especial benefit. No person who has taken 
this course, O)- even a part of it, has ever failed to 
secure a Teacher's First Grade Certificate in North Car- 
olina. In the past the demand for teachers has been 
greater than the College could supply. The young men 
and women who have taken this work have gone out over 
the State and have become apostles of light and culture 
wherever they have gone. 

The demand now is for trained teachers, men and 
women who have a knowledge of the principles that un- 
derlie mental training. It is the purpose of this de- 
partment to give professional training and that knowl- 
edge which distinguishes the teacher from the mere 
scholar. To this end, it undertakes the study of educa- 
tion under its three phases: Practical, Scientfic, and 
Histoi'ical. Under the Art phase is offered a study of 
the best methods of organizing, governing, and instruct- 
ing a school. The courses offered are as follows: — 

Fir.'it y^w/'.— Pag-e's Theory and Practice of Teaching-, and 
White's Elements of Pedagogy. 

Sccoyid Ye<( /•. - Corapayre' s Lectures on Pedagogy ; Baldwin 's 
Applied Psychology for Teachers. 

24 Liberty Normal College.

Corapayre's History of Education. 

Fourth year.— The Art of Teaching-; Fitch's Lectures on 

Electives : Rosenkranz' Philosophy of Education; Monroe's 
Educational Ideal; Herbartian Pedagogy; Rousseau's Emile ; 
Pestolozzi's Leonard and Gertrude. 

Mental and Moral Philosophy. 

Eacii student should know himself, and to this end 
the following courses in Psychology and Mental Philos- 
ophy are offered: 

First Year. — Compayre's, Baldwin's, Gordy's, or Dexter and 
Garlick's Psychology. 

Second Year. — Gow's Morals and Manners: Peabody's Moral 

The student is led to have a right conception of his 
duty and relation to his fellow man. He is led to real- 
ize the fact that man's highest duty is to serve, and to 
reach that ideal of perfection which his God intended 
he should reacli. 

Economics and Social Science. 

The study of Economics is a necessary part of a 
thorough education. These courses aim to impart that 
wide knowledge and liberal culture which results from 
an intelligent and philosophical study of the records of 
the past: to trace and set forth the steps of progress in 
the development of modern civilization; and, by an im- 
partial exposition of the fundamental principles of eco- 
nomics, political, and social science, to lead the student 
to realize his duties and obligations to society and to 
the state, and to prepare him for the intelligent exercise 
of the rights and privileges of free citizensliip. 

LiBEKTY Normal College. 25 

The course in Political Economy embraces a histori- 
cal survey of the development of the economic life and 
of modern industrial society, and an exposition of the 
principles underlying the four great departments of Eco- 
nomics viewed from the standpoint of private enter- 
prise — Wealth, Exchange, Production, Distribution. 
Descriptive Political Economy also receives marked at- 
tention in the study of the correlated subjects — Social- 
ism, Taxation, Free Trade and Protection, Bimetalism. 
Banking, and the Labor Problem. 

Sociology includes a study of the general principles 
underlying the social life of man with special reference 
to its relations to the living social questions of the day. 
*'An Introduction to the Study of Society" by Small 
and Vincent is used as a text book. Lectures on the 
Natural History of Society will be given from time to 


Nothing has been more neglected in this part of the 
country than this important subject. The Liberty 
Normal College offers a thorough course in Voice Train- 
ing, Expression, Gesture, and Extempore Speaking. 
Pulton and Trueblood's and Straw's Elocutions are used 
as text-books. The principles of gesture and gesticula- 
tion are taught. Every effort is made to assist the stu- 
dent in becoming a good reader or speaker. 

Commercial College. 

This is one of the special departments of Liberty 
Normal College. The time has come when the world is 
calling for practical and accurate business men and 
women. The course here given is preeminently prac- 

26 Liberty Normal College. 

tical, omitting none of the details of office work. The 
student is drilled in all the principles of Bookkeeping 
and of Commercial Law. 

The course we give at the Liberty Normal College 
is a thorough course and is not to be compared with the 
courses given by some of the schools of our country. 
Our course is thorough and we prepare a man for busi- 
nes'g' and a business career. MVe jjrepare students for 
the work of life, and no student is allowed to receive 
our Business College Diploma unless he is thorough in 
his work, and unless we are willing to risk the reputa- 
tion of this department of our College in his ability to 
perform the work for which we have prepai-ed him. 

We make no hesitation in saying that the Principal 
of this Department is one of the most thorough busi- 
ness men in the South. He is tlioroughl}'^ fitted for his 
work and prepares his students according to the latest 
business methods. 

The regular Business College Course comprises the 
following branches of study: 

Spelling- and Defining; Comercial Law; Bookkeeping, Sin- 
gle and Double Entry; Business Letter . Waiting ; Penmanshi]); 
Arithmetic; Punctuation. 

Students must take up such studies in the Litera- 
ry Department as will enable them to make up all de- 
ficiencies in Grammar, History and Geography. 

No student will receive a diploma in this depart- 
ment unless his moral charactei- is such that the Facul- 
ty could recommend him to any position of honor and 
trust. The Faculty will assist w^orthy graduates in 
securing positions. 

We would say to the young man oi* the young wo- 
man that we are living in an age w^hen we must have 
men and women who are well prepared and well equipped 

Liberty Normal College. 27 

for a business career, and that success is surely the 
goal of that young man or young woman who prepares 
for a commercial life, and then with persevering energy 
stick to their chosen calhng. The. best preparation is 
given in our school, and if you prepare yourself here, 
there is no reasonable doubt but that with the pluck and 
energy of a heroic manhood or womahood, you will 
surely succeed. 


The day has come when there is a demand for the 
Typewriter and the Stenographer, and no person skilled 
in tliese branches is ever long without a position. We 
use the best machines and secure the best results. 

Insti'uction is given in fingering, manifolding, touch, 
nnd writing all business forms. Students are instruct- 
ed in the use of the machine, its care and mechanism. 
They are required to make haste slowly, and in the end 
they are perfect. We do not give Diplomas in Type 
writing until the student has acquired a speed or 60 
words to tiie minute. 

Stenography. , 

The College offers this year a course in Stenogra- 
phy. The world is demanding men and women who can 
write faster than the ordinary penman. In this day of 
push and rush we must prepare to keep up with the 
world of business. 

The course offered is thorough and practical. The 
student is taught to write as fast as a person ordinarily 
converses, then he is lequired to copy the dictation ex- 
ercise on the Typewriter. Dictation exercises are 
given tlwoughout the whole course of study. 


Liberty Normal College. 

Diplomas are granted wlien the

A full course in Plain and Ornamenla) Penmanship 
is given to all students who wisli to avail themselves of 
the opportunity. Every student should aspire to write 
a good hand, and with a little diligence any one can 
learn to write a good hand in a few months' time. Our 
penman is one of the best in the South, and we hope all 
young men and women will avail themselves of the op- 
portunity of taking lessons under him. 

Correspondence Course. 

There are quite a great many students all over the 
country who have not the time to spend in school, but 
who have some time that they would like to spend in 
profitable study. There are many that have tl>e time to 

r^— 7??^f^ 

-^. ?^'i--^ ,-" 

' '*! ^ - 

Liberty Normal College. 29 

to pi-epare lliem selves for higher positions while at 
their work, but who cannot drop their work and go to 
school as resident students. There are still others who 
would be glad to take a course of study just for the 
mere sake that they have for the love of knowledge and 
truth. To all such as these, the faculty of the Liberty 
Normal College offers courses of instruction by corre- 
spondence. Instruction will be given by correspond- 
ence al a low cost in any of the branches of study that 
are outlined in the Courses of Study in this Catalogue. 
Any ueison wishing to prepai'e for examination for a 
TcMcher's Certificate, for the Civil Service, or for any- 
thing else, and cannot spare the time to attend school, 
would do w^ell lo coi-respond with the President and 
lake one of ihe Corj-espondence Courses offered by the 
ColU^ge The College guar;intees satisfaction in this 
work. Courses aie outlined, instruction is given, 
papers nie coirected, and the student receives all pos- 
sible aid ill tliis coi'respondence work. The work is 
moi-e thorough than that given by any other Cor- 
respondence School in the country. 

Lecture Courses. 

It has been the policy of the College to have a 
course of public lectures given through the College year. 
The Lecture ()ourse will be especially rich this year. 
Some of the most noted lecturers in the State and 
some from other States have consented to deliver lect- 
ures, and the Faculty of the College will prepare pro- 
giams at lenst once each month. 

DitTereut members of the Faculty will also deliver 
lectures from time to time on subjects of interest and 
profit. We believe this course will be profitable to the 


Liberty Normal College. 

student, and we feel that it will be worthy of liis con 
sideration in clioosing- a school to attend. 

School of riusic. 

The object of this School is 
to give to young men and 
woman Ihat musical training 
that the ])resent age demands. 
Instruction is offered in both 
Vocal and Instrumental Mu- 
sic. Students are taught to 
sing at sight. '^Jlie director 
of the School of Music has 
taken courses in music in some of the best schools and 
Conservatories in the South, and slie is fully |)re[)ared 
to give instruction in all branches of Vocal and instru 
mental Music, 

In the department of Instrumental Music, the stu 
dent will be taught correct ideas of liuje and move" 
ment. Students will here have the opportunity of mak- 
ing good musicians, but they must not forget that no 
amount of instruction can make them such, unless ihey 
have the necessary anjount of patience and eneigy. 
They must labor for an end so worthy. The courses 
caj'ry the student through the following studies. 

Matthew's Graded Course, Books I, IL ITI; Czerny ; Bertini, 
Mason's Touch and Teclinic. 


Matthew's Books IV. V. VI; Bach's Inventions; Heller; 


Matthew's Books VII, VIII, IX, X; Kullok's Octave Studies; 

Liberty Normal College. 31 

Selections from Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Mendelsohn, Liszt, 
Weber. Schumann, and others. 

Requirements for Graduation. 

Upon the completion of the prescribed work in any 
of the courses of study, the student will receive a Di- 
ploraa. No student will be allowed to graduate whose 
recitation ;ind examination grades fall below 80 per 
(tent. No student will be allow^ed to graduate unless 
his or lier moral character is such that the Faculty can 
i-ecommend them to any position of honor and trust. 
The Diploma fee is $2.

Special Information. 

If possible to do so, enter at the be«iinning of the 
term. Classes are organized on the tirsl (iay and regu- 
lai' work is commenced on the second day ot the term. 
No deduction will be made in tuition charges lo those 
who enter a few days late, or who leave a few days be- 
foi'e the close of the term. 

Any student entering the College and leaving with- 
out rendering a satisfactoi-y excuse will bo charged an 
entrance fee of $5. 

^Every student is expected to stand the examina- 
tions of i;he College, and any student failing to stand 
the examinations without rendering a satisfactory ex- 
cuse and being excused by the Faculty will be expelled. 

Each student should provide liimself with a Bible 
and keep it regularly in his i-oom. We believe in en- 
cou)-agii]g the young to read the Bible. 

Reports will be sent to pai-enis or guardians 
every ten weeks sliowing the progress of students and 
their general deportment. 

Students may enter at any tiniQ and are charged 
from the day of entrance exce})t as hereinbefore pro- 

The College makes no deduction from tuition bills 
except in case of protracted sickness, and we trust no 
one will ask it. 

Liberty Normal College. 35 

The [)G()ple of Liberty and the surrounding coun- 
try are requested not to give any social entertainments 
at their homes to whicli they invite students of the Col- 
lege during the school week. Such parties and enter- 
tainments are a bane to the student's intehectual hfe, 
and they can not be allowed to attend. They interfere 
with the student's work, and we must insist that tlie 
student's business here is to study. While students 
are here under our control we purpose to govern them 
for their own liighest good, and it is hoped that no one 
wih liave l-l)e spirit of interfering whore he has no 

The time it takes to complete any course of study 
will depend upon the student's natural ability and his 
application to his work. Five months will generally be 
required to complete the Commercial Course a,nd four 
years to complete any of the College Courses. 

Sludenls will find plenty of rooms here in Liberty 
for rent at from 25 cents per month up. They can 
board themselves, or form clubs and reduce the cost of 
board to a very small sum. Many of our best students 
have done this in the past. They seem to be willing to 
do any way in their power to get an education. We lift 
oui" hats gladly to the young man or woman who is will- 
ing to undergo almost any privation that they may se- 
cure an education. A person that has that much grit 
in him will make a man in this world and the world will 
be made better by him. Thetime has come when all 
can get an education, and Liberty Normal College opens 
its gates to all and says "Come!" 

Expenses and Terms. 

Expenses are kept at a minimum. Liberty is one 
of the cheapest towns for living in this part of North 

36 Liberty Normal College. 

Carolina. Its agricultural base enables tbe people here 
to give board to students at a low rate. The whole ex- 
penses, outside of books, need not exceed $100 per year 
of ten months, and some students, by rigid economy 
and boarding themselves, or in clubs, often reduce 
their expenses to $50 or less per year. 

The College char-ges, and cost of board, etc., are as

less otherwise provided for. The rates given above 
are exact, and each student can determine, before en- 
tering, the cost of his tuition, etc., for one month or 
for one year in Liberty Normal College. 

No student will be chaiged for less than one 
month's tuition. If a student is in the College only for 
a few days, he will be charged for one full month's 
tuition and for his Contingent Pee. 

Where special rates are given a student, in consid- 
eration of his spending some months in the College, if 
the student leaves the College before the expiration of 
the time contracted for, he will be charged the regular
